The turbine does need a break in period. EBAY turbos need them more because they are not run prior to being sold. Which means that the metal has not become naturally polished yet so that motor can run smoothly. (DO YOUR RESEARCH... "BRO"!)
Driving it for a couple hundred miles usually does the trick... and this is if itwasn't broken in by the factory...

NOW! back to computers.

Well that was unnecessary...

NOW! back to computers.

do some reading. hell, READ your own link. the "break in" period your trying to refer to is priming the oil lines so you dont blow your seals running the turbo dry. the reason ebay turbo will blow faster is because the seals in it are not to quality spec, a simple top line rebuild kit used prior to install will cure any worries of oil blow or early deterioration. im sorry to say man... but you is wrong. when i blew my ebay 50 trim i upgraded right to a garret t3/t4 60trim .63ar exducer/.57inducer ball bearing. pre-oiled the turbo and slapped it on...has ran 24lbs every day since install...no failure...no break in...all power.

hope this helps thumb.gif

as for the topic that should be at hand (the F6 BIOS) i have not had any BSODs or anything bad..vdroop is still the same...i dont know if the 1.0rev didnt get the LLC ( i guess not since i dont have it) but i know other revisions that my friends have indeed have LLC now...crap stix..tongue.gif

*edit* im using ud-3 board
post #3054 of 12377
i had the turbo and oil lines removed from my motherboard

That's how real men OC biggrin.gif

Besides, I'm a roots / screw blower guy myself... but again, wrong forum.

I've been real leery of F6... and I think I'm gonna stick to F5 since I know I already have this chip at its high point.

My apologies if this has been answered already, but I'm using tapatalk and it does not allow me to search within a thread.

I have the 3 series of this mobo. Are there any big advantages of using an upgraded sound card? I don't plan on doing anything more than listening to high quality audio.

I can hear a difference between my Titanium and the onboard, but that will be the only difference. It won't magically make your CPU run faster or anything.

The Realtek ALC889 that this board uses is actually a decent audio chip. With updated drivers from realtek I've been very pleased...

With that said however, you need to consider your listening preference. Are you going to be using headphones, self powered speakers, or piping to a receiver?.

I'd say for headphone playback I've heard better. That's not to say its bad, maybe invest in a decent Headphone amp.

I have am old set of Logitech X-540 speakers I use with my machine. And these sound flat amazing with the onboard sound. Turn Dolby on the game setting and was amazed.

And when it comes to piping to a receiver, this card will send any codec you would want to.
